Woodlands For Sale Central England
Archway Wood, Edwinstowe, Nottinghamshire 3.11 acres of riverside broadleaved woodland offering high amenity in the heart of Sherwood Forest, freehold for £25,500 [#341].
A delightful riverside property offering excellent recreational and environmental opportunities, surrounded by farmland in the heart of Sherwood Forest.
Archway Wood sits amidst ancient meadows on the banks of the River Maun in a rural mosaic of wood, hedgerow and field. This broadleaved woodland is dominated by silver birch with minor elements of oak, beech, rowan, poplar, willow, holly and hazel. Many of the trees are open-grown resulting in stems with full crowns. This wider spacing of stems also allows plenty of dappled sunlight to the forest floor giving a generally light and airy feeling to the wood.
The wood is largely level and on well-drained soil affording good access throughout. There is a small flat grassy area overlooking the river near the centre of the wood – an obvious focus for BBQs and camping.
The south side of the wood fronts the River Maun, the bed of which belongs to the wood. This clean peaceful river has an abundance of fish and birdlife including a resident pair of swans, and offers good prospects for angling.
The current owner’s recreational use of this wood over many years is testimony to its character.
Leave Mansfield heading northeast on the B 6030. Cross straight over the lights at the intersection with the A 6117. Continue for a further 4 miles and then turn left onto Archway Road just before the Dog and Duck Public House.
Continue down this road for 550m to a T junction and turn left under the arched railway bridge. Continue down the hill for a further 240m to the bridge at the bottom.

The wood can also be accessed on foot from Edwinstowe. Near the 30 MPH sign at the west edge of the village (on the A 6075 Mansfield Road) enter the farm track and public bridleway to the south.

Rights of Way:
There is a vehicular right of access from the A 6075 to the west end of the wood, with maintenance according to use. The route is overgrown and appears not to have been used recently, but could be re-established if a new owner elected to do so.
A bridle-path runs along the north edge of the wood (AB on plan). The current owner accesses the wood on foot via this path from both east and west.
According to a conveyance from 1973 there is an obligation on the owner to fence and maintain the north boundary. There are currently no perimeter fences and the adjacent field to the north is arable. The current owner has never been asked to fence this boundary.
